Subject: actually the naks.munder pull is the best
Subject: This pull
Subject: Rip roaring
Every song in the 1st set has some sort of amazing little energy riff by Jerry . the Alabama smokes as does Big River and of course all those other highlights we all know about from the Bird Song show as it was called back then. One of the comments below says something about after Dire Wolf Bobby plays a riff of a song not ever played again and only played for a few years prier. . Is weather report suite riff
This 1st set makes this show a 5 star event along with who recorded it Barry has the best F O B M O T B out there
Subject: First Grateful Dead show
Subject: First Set
Also, check out the Jackaroe. There's an extra instrumental near the end as Jerry seems to lose his place for a moment in the lyrics ~ then comes out of the added instrumental exactly mid-verse in the lyrics after all.
The Looks Like Rain, Passenger and Deal are also great to end this 90+ minute set, especially Deal. Man, Jerry just gets dirty at the end. Check it out.
Second set starts fine with the first electric Aiko since back at Rochester in Sept. MAN, THAT WAS big to hear it to open the set then.. after The Lost Break', the guys are set to launch into Uncle John's.. They're all over it & Jerry backs out (a problem with songs he stumble onto during the jam all tour except 3/10). As soon as UJB evaporated, I knew the show would tank. It did.
Subject: Bird Song For The Ages
Bird Song is one for the ages! Looks Like Rain and Deal are killer. Alabama and Jack-A Roe are excellent.
1981 was amazing, the best year after '74 other than '77. And this first set highlights how well Jerry's guitar playing became! Suddenly Jerry was better than '78-'80 in my eyes.
9/12 Bird Song is beautiful too and those Greek's will underscore what I am saying about the year at hand. Also, 5/16 is good, 7/10 is fun, 12/26 is hot etc...
very nicely recorded and thanks for the transfer!
Subject: Glassberg is the BOMB
This is a very enegetic perfomance from the Band. The DEAL is off-the-hook. This is worth listening to!
